  • amazon prime update

    No amazon prime since January 2019. Ordered 1 item which was free since over $35. Not missing it. Do other order daily like I hear from all my friends?

    I canceled mine around the same time as well. I've maybe done one order since then, but wasn't in any rush for shipping. Not missing the service either.

      Tough to tell because orders don't show if they're grouped, they appear as single items, but I've ordered 21 items since Jan. 1. I appreciate the convenience of just hitting buy now and the 2 day shipping when I want/need something but if I were paying shipping, i could certainly handle waiting until I had a big enough list for free shipping to place an order most of the time. I also love subscribe and save - never run out of monthly essentials and have to make a last minute or late night trip to the store and it provides savings on items we have to buy all the time anyway.

        We order regularly partly because of Prime. It used to be a pain having to wait until we had enough to get free shipping because sometimes we didn't want to wait for an item. This way we can just order whenever the need arises. Rarely does a week go by where one of us doesn't place an order. I also have one item on subscription that comes every other month.

        The amount we save by shopping on Amazon way more than makes up for the cost of Prime. Plus we also use Prime Video. DD uses it a lot. DW and I use it occasionally, like to watch certain shows.

          We order from Amazon a few times a week. A lot of items have a free same day delivery for Prime members, which is extremely convenient. When you have two little kids at home, it's a small price to pay for not having to go to the store. The other day we ran out of toothpaste, which we usually buy at Costco, so I ordered a small tube on Amazon. We also have a Prime credit card which gives us 5% cashback on all Amazon and Wholefoods purchases, so considering we spend around $1,000 there each month, it gives us back $50, which pays off the cost of Prime in three months.

            I want to cancel Amazon at some point, but with two busy daughter's at college it is convenient to order them books for each semester (often cheaper than University bookstore) along with vitamins and other personal care products. We buy things for ourselves too. I think we are pretty good at not buying things we don't need. We now use Amazon music quite a bit to stream music in our house. We don't have Alexa, but just use our phones to connect to our bluetooth speaker.

              creditcardfree do you have prime student? Its 59.99/yr.

              I just had to make a new prime student acct cause oldest dd is graduating. You get for 5 years under each college kid. On my 2nd college kid now and will still have one in school when this prime student expires to get another.

              So all in all, will be on prime student for 15 years which is 1/2 off regular price, then I'll probably cancel.ha

              Going to use amazon prime now to get groceries delivered in 2 hours next month when we're at Disney. Excited to try that out.

                I'm aware of Prime Student, I guess I figured the student would then have control of the account with their .edu email address. I think our current membership ends/renews in September, maybe I'll look into it more closely then! Have fun at Disney!!

                    I wonder sometimes if it is worth it as well. We don't order things very often, but we watch content on Prime. We also shop at Whole Foods for fresh fruit and veggies. I recently found out you can sometimes get a discount by scanning in your Prime whole foods code.

                      i still have my edu account. my college lets me keep it live indefinitely as a forwarding address as long as you keep asking them yearly. it definitely does help for sites that ask for edu email addresses for discounts and stuff. lol
